HOW I GOT THIS BOOK: Review copy as a part of iRead Book tours. Thanks Guys!
This book picks off from the fourth book in the series. Gilbert, Aoleon and Bizwat storm into the prison facility to release Aoleon’s parents and end up blowing up the place while releasing all the prisoners. They then go on to save planet Earth from the Luminion’s invasion. Meanwhile back in ‘Tera’ the President of US and his team authorize counter attacks which fail comically against the technologically advanced Martians. Will Earth be saved on time?
Just like previous books, this book also had beautiful and vivid illustrations that really got me all excited. The bright colors and the sleek costumes look so enticing! I felt these illustrations just got better as the story progressed. Or maybe the writer mastered this art as he wrote this edition of the series. The action sequences and parts where Bizwat taught Gilbert all the tricks of this training were a treat to read. The major twist which was placed half way in the book simply was simply brilliant. That twist revealed who the true enemy was. I simply laughed my head off reading it. The scenes back in earth were quite humorous. Not sure if it was intentional, just that it we humans seemed so primitive when compared to the Martians. Needless to mention, the narration was just perfect. The characters somehow seem to have matured though they are very much the kids that they were in the start of the series.The USP of this book would be the vivid narration of action sequences and the subtle humor all along the story.
MY SAY: A fitting end to an enchanting and thrilling series
PLOT : 9/10
